I’ve got good news and I’ve got bad news. The bad news is, there are murder hornets. The good news is, I lied, there is no good news, there are murder hornets. But at least there are some funny tweets about murder hornets, so we got that going for us, which is nice.

It should be said that though these nasty buggies are the meme of the moment, that’s not an excuse for us to be dumb. People are killing off helpful insects in cases of mistaken identity. DON’T do that. DO make jokes. Like these!

12. Netflix and definitely not chill

I’m not a fan of reality at the moment.


11. This is not a game

We’re gonna have dragons next.


10. At least it can’t get any worse…

Famous last words.

9. Friend or foe?

This would be…better? Maybe?

8. Over it

Don’t mess with Texas, it is already thoroughly messed with.

7. Law enforcement

Surprise, dummies.

6. No not like that

I appreciate the enthusiasm, but…

5. I dreamed a dream

Ok now go make that reality.

4. What’s it gonna be today?

Learning is not fun.

3. The real monster

I always knew Godzilla was our ally.


2. Hornet hors d’oeuvres

Everything is palatable with bacon.

1. Gotta kill ’em all

Pokey man.

Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to go live in a bunker before reality becomes that episode of Black Mirror with the killer bees app, because the way this year is going I guarantee you that’s what’s coming next.

How are you protecting yourself from the murder hornets?
